Mexico City Mayor Marcel Ebrard Casaubón has unveiled a bold plan to use biogas emissions from the recently closed Bordo Poniente landfill to produce electricity for street lighting and the subway system in the Mexican capital. Even as Ebrard is moving forward with the project, the mayor must respond to a complaint from the federal water commission (Comisión Nacional del Agua, CONAGUA), which alleges that the Mexico City government has allowed hazardous materials from the landfill to filter into the ground and the air.
